• Kakadiaris’ research team has been a leader in the field of face recognition for more than a decade with contributions in the areas of 3D face (and ear) recognition, 3D-aided 2D Face Recognition, 2D-2D Face Recognition, and profile-based face recognition. Of note is that the team’s 3D-3D face recognition
software ranked first in the 3D-shape section of the 2007 Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) organized by NIST, while their 3D-2D method outperforms the state of the art 2D face recognition methods.
• Kakadiaris most recently served has as the Director of the Borders, Trade, and Immigration (BTI) Institute, a Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence led by the University of Houston (UH). As director of the BTI Institute, Ioannis oversaw multiple projects, undertaken by eighteen partners across eight states and the District of Columbia. The portfolio focused on homeland security enterprise research, education, and workforce development by studying complex, multi-disc...
